Our most prominent activity is a fortnightly meeting on Thursday afternoons at the Harpenden Trust Hall. Here we usually have a speaker, followed by a discussion, or a session involving members' contributions. These meetings start formally at 2.15pm with announcements, but you will find much conversation going on from 1.45pm onwards and also afterwards as people continue to chat before dispersing.


From time to time we arrange visits to places of interest, either on a Thursday afternoon or extra to the programme. These might involve a charge for transport or entry fees. Sometimes, for a nearby location, members might make up car-loads.

Proposed visits and outings are announced at the General meetings and are advertised on the notice board at the general meetings, in the Programmes and Newsletters, as notices on the 'Welcome' page and on the appropriate Group page.
